Unlike Bryan Adams, I didn’t have the chance to experience the summer of 1969 but I do remember the summer of 1996 as if it was yesterday… Starting her sold-out titanic Wildest Dreams World Tour with 3 shows in Bercy (3 more would be added later in September) Paris in May, Tina was everywhere, with a hot single, a brand new successful album, and a breathtaking look. And like this year, it was a hot summer and a memorable one.
On June 25, 1996, Tina performed in the small eastern city of Nancy, France, only a couple of kilometers of where I was growing up. One of the biggest concert ever given in the local Zenith, attracting more than 25.000 fans from all over Europe.
On June 25, 1996, I was flying for the first to the USA with my family… The irony of the situation has never left me but I have no regrets since I had already seen Tina and would see her again many times after that…
Today, July 21st, 2018 marks the 22nd anniversary of Tina’s concerts at the legendary Wembley Stadium in London! Performing for two nights in front of a mesmerized crowd, the show offered by the Queen of Rock to her massive audience was simply perfect from start to finish. The songs, the voice, the costumes, the energy, the stage… in my opinion the epitome of Tina’s live performances.
So in order to celebrate this memorable tour and more particularly this special concert, here’s a selection of songs Tina performed in London during that tour. Nothing special in terms of setlist (‘a good show is a good show everywhere’) but a fantastic radio broadcast with awesome vocals directly taken from the soundboard. The type of bootlegs you wish you had more! Enjoy the songs but most of all, I wish you all a peaceful summer! ☀️☀️☀️
